Bob Dylan: Love and Theft [Sep. 16th, 2001|07:20 pm]

Are people raving because this is decent and unembarrassing? I mean, I'll listen to it again for certain, and it's nice to hear him trying the jump-blues thing etc., but some of this is just retro exercises, and anyone who thinks it's an A+ record might want to go compare it to, say, _Highway 61 Revisited_. Much as I'd love to hear him revelatory again, I'm happy to hear him being good and workmanlike; just let's not pretend it's revelatory.
